I paid my money and joined the WI at this months meeting. Membership is now up to 12 ladies which my sister in law says is more than they've had for many, many years.
This months speaker was from The Fishermen's Mission, a charity
which helps fishermen in all sorts of ways. They can be there when a
tragedy happens to support the family, for retired or injured men and
immigrant fishermen too.
We were all shocked to hear just how many
men are drowned or fatally injured at sea each year and many more are
rescued and less seriously injured.
We had a bring and buy table
to raise some much needed funds for the Mission and I bought a tiny rose
bush which will be added to our rose garden. (never had a rose garden before! hope I can keep them alive)
Tasty cakes with coffee again - worth going just for the cake!
